Questionable Outfit Sweep Eastbound & Dahn with 16-0 Game Three Win, Advance to Wiffle Series

13 Aug

Questionable Outfit and Eastbound & Dahn shake hands at the conclusion of their first round playoff series. Questionable Outfit earned the sweep, winning the first three games of the best-of-five series.

The three-time defending champions of the EWL, Questionable Outfit, earned a fifth consecutive trip to the EWL Wiffle Series by completing a first round sweep of Eastbound & Dahn with a 16-0 win in game three. Miller hit for the cycle, going 7-for-8, and all four Questionable players pitched effectively in what was nearly a no-hitter (until the final inning). Eastbound & Dahn’s season ended with twenty consecutive losses in what will go down as perhaps the most challenging season in EWL history. Questionable Outfit will await the winner of the first round series between the Ham Slams and Cookies & Cream to determine who they will face off against for the championship.

BK started on the mound for Eastbound & Dahn, and he fell behind early. Bob led off the game with a triple, and Tom drove him in with an RBI double that made the score 1-0. Rairigh then singled to put runners on the corners, and when Miller grounded out to center for the first out, Tom score, putting Questionable ahead 2-0. Bob followed with a single, scoring Rairigh, and the lead was 3-0. Tom then singled to put runners on first and second with one out, but BK avoided further damage, retiring Rairigh for the second, out stranding two runners and ending the inning.

Bob took the mound to start the game for Questionable Outfit, and he retired the side in order in the bottom of the first.

Bob pitched two scoreless innings for Questionable Outfit and earned the win in game 3.

Miller led off the top of the second with a double, but Questionable couldn’t score him, as BK retired Bob and Tom to strand the runner and end the inning with the score 3-0.

Questionable put Rairigh on the mound in the bottom of the second, and he retired Kyle and BK consecutively.

Questionable Outfit would open up a big lead in the top of the third. Rairigh led off with a triple, and Miller drove him in with a two-run bomb to left-center, making the Questionable lead 5-0. Bob then singled and move to third when Tom doubled. Mike came to the plate with two runners in scoring position, and he scored them both with an RBI single that made the score 7-0. Miller then tripled, scoring Mike, and the lead was 8-0. The big inning would end there, as BK retired Bob and Tom, and Eastbound & Dahn trailed by eight.

Rairigh launches one of his five hits in the game. He also pitched two scoreless innings of relief in the Questionable Outfit win.

Questionable Outfit turned to Miller on the mound in the bottom of the third, and he retired Adam and Nate C in order, making Questionable Outfit perfect through three innings.

Rairigh led off the top of the fourth with a single, and he moved from first to third when Miller followed with a single that gave him the cycle for the game. BK got Bob to ground out to center for the first out of the inning, but Rairigh scored on the play, making the score 9-0. Tom then grounded out to left, ending the inning.

Questionable continued their rotating cast of pitchers, switching to Tom in the bottom of the fourth. He retired the side in order, the seventh and eighth consecutive batters retired to start the game.

Questionable added more to their lead in the top of the fifth. Rairigh led off with a double and moved to third when Miller followed with a double. Bob grounded out to center for the first out of the inning, but both baserunners scored on the play, and Questionable Outfit led 11-0. Tom then hit a solo homer to left, pushing the Questionable lead to 12-0. BK retired Rairigh to end the inning, and the lead was now twelve runs.

Bob went 5-for-9 in the Questionable Outfit victory with 3 singles, a double, a triple, and 6 RBI

Bob returned to the mound in the top of the fifth, and he send Nate O and Christian down in order, making Questionable Outfit perfect through five innings with a twelve run lead.

Miller started the top of the sixth with a double, and Bob drove him in with an RBI single that made the score 13-0. Tom singled to put runners on first and second, and two batters later, Miller hit a one-out double, clearing the bases, and Questionable Outfit’s lead was 15-0. Bob then doubled, scoring Miller from second, and the score was 16-0. BK retired Tom to end the inning, and Eastbound & Dahn would head into the bottom of the sixth needing sixteen runs to extend their season and a hit to break up the perfect game.

The rotation of pitchers turned to Rairigh, who pitched a perfect frame in the bottom of the second for Questionable Outfit. He retired Adam, the first batter he faced, and he was one out away from sealing a first round sweep and a perfect game no-hitter. But Eastbound & Dahn showed a glimpse of life on their way out of the 2017 season. Nate C came to the plate as the last out, but he managed to hit a seeing-eye single that fell in for a base hit, breaking up the no hitter. After retiring the first eleven hitters of the game, the twelfth hitter, Nate C., had broken up the perfect game. Eastbound got another hit when Nate O. followed with a single, and Eastbound had two runners on. They had broken up the historical no-hit bid, but a sixteen run rally wasn’t in the cards. Rairigh cracked down and retired Christian for the second out of the inning, stranding both runners and ending the game.

Questionable Outfit had completed a first round sweep of Eastbound & Dahn, winning the best-of-five series 3-0 and advancing to the Wiffle Series for the fifth consecutive year.

Questionable Outfit Offense Too Much for Eastbound & Dahn in 16-2 Game One Rout

6 Aug

Miller, who prepares to catch a fly ball late in the game, earned the win on the mound for Questionable in game one and went 5-for-6 at the plate

Both Questionable Outfit and Eastbound & Dahn continued where they left off in the regular season in game one of their best-of-five first round series, as Questionable’s offense was explosive and Eastbound’s defense was porous. Questionable Outfit took advantage of countless fielding errors, jumping out to a large lead in the first inning, and they never looked back, cruising to a 16-2 victory. Bob went 6-for-7, hitting for the cycle, with a single, three doubles, a triple, and a home run, while his teammate, Miller, went 5-for-6 with a single, three doubles, a home run, and four RBI.

Miller started on the mound for Questionable Outfit, and he retired Eastbound in order in the top of the first.

Christian started for Eastbound & Dahn, and his defense failed him immediately and often. After an unthinkable number of fielding errors, which Questionable Outfit took full advantage of, Eastbound & Dahn trailed 9-0. Questionable reached base safely in seven of their first eight at-bats, all eight of which should have been recorded as outs.

Miller struck out Kyle to start the top of the second, and then retired BK to end the inning.

Miller continued to roll on the mound, retiring Eastbound in order in the top of the third, and he had retired Eastbound’s first six batters without allowing a base runner.

Eastbound was threatening, but Tom cracked down, retiring Christian and Kyle to strand both runners without allowing a run, and the score remained 14-2.

Miller started the bottom of the fifth with a double, and Bob drove him in with a two-run homer to right-center, giving him the cycle for the game and putting Questionable Outfit ahead 16-2. Christian retired Tom and Mike to end the inning, and Eastbound trailed by fourteen runs heading into their final at-bat.

Tom ended the game quickly in the top of the sixth, retiring BK and Adam in order, giving Questionable Outfit a 16-2 victory in game one of the first round series.
